  • I have the HP Photosmart C3183 printer. I'm using a black HP 132 cartridge. Now I cannot find another HP 132 ink cartridge for sale and buy HP 336 instead but the printer shows a red flashing alarm and will not work. What can I do? Which cartridge can I use in my HP C3183 printer?

    Photosmart C3183 ink cartridge compatibility

    Ink cartridges have region codes, similar to DVDs and depending on where the printer was bought you will require different cartridges. Unfortunately, we only sell UK cartridges and the HP 336 cartridge will not work in your printer as this is a UK cartridge. The only cartridge you will be able to use in your printer is one with the same number that you have removed, the HP 132. You may struggle to find this cartridge in the UK. I would suggest doing a Google search for this cartridge number to find a company who can supply it, or you can also contact HP directly who should be able to help. I would not recommend searching for cartridges using your printer model as this is likely to bring up UK cartridges which are not compatible with your printer.

  • I have a HP Photosmart C3183 printer. I'm looking for a HP 136 tri-colour print cartridge and a black HP 131 print cartridge. I've tried to use the other substitute print cartridges recommended but it doesn't seem to work. It seems my printer would only accept cartridges 136 and 131. Do you have these cartridges and can I buy them please or can you suggest what I must do?

    Photosmart C3183 won't accept my cartridges?

    Like DVDs, cartridges have region codes and different numbers depending on where the printer was purchased. The cartridges that we sell for the Photosmart C3183 printer will only work if your HP C3183 printer was purchased in the UK, and only if the cartridges removed from the printer have the same code as the new cartridges you're installing. If you have been using the HP 131 and HP 136 cartridges, it is likely that these are the only cartridges the printer will accept. Unfortunately, we cannot supply these as they are non-UK cartridges. I would recommend doing a Google search for the cartridge numbers or contacting HP, they should be able to supply the cartridges you need and can even help you change the region code of the printer.

  • Are you able to deliver colour and black ink catridges to Kerala State?

    Black and colour ink for HP C3183

  • My printer uses HP 132 so why suggest HP 336?

    C3183 ink cartridges for UK printers

    If your printer uses a HP 132 ink cartridge this suggests that your machine is a non-UK model. If this is the case, the cartridges we stock for the Photosmart C3183 will not work because they are designed for use with UK printers only.

  • Where can I get a spare power supply adapter for the HP Photosmart C 3183 printer model?

    HP Photosmart C3183 power supply

    You may need to contact HP directly to get the correct part number. They should be able to advise you of a local stockist. I'm afraid we don't supply this type of product and it may only be available from a HP parts specialist.

  • I have the HP C3183 printer but I don’t know the number of the cartridges to buy, for example 129 and 135?

    HP Photosmart C3183 cartridge numbers

    All of the cartridge numbers listed on this page will work in a HP Photosmart C3183 printer that was purchased in the UK. However, if you've previously used HP 129 or HP 135 cartridges this suggests that your printer was purchased in another country, in which case the cartridges that we supply will not work for you. Like DVDs, ink cartridges are specific to a geographical region so you'll get different cartridge numbers in different countries. Please contact HP directly if you need to buy ink for a non-UK version of the Photosmart C3183 printer. We've included a link to the relevant contact page for you: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

  • Aren't the substitute cartridges for HP Photosmart C3183 the HP 132 black print cartridge and HP 136 tri-colour print cartridge?

    Photosmart C3183 cartridge numbers

    No, the HP 132 and HP 136 are non-UK cartridges so they won't work in a Photosmart C3183 printer that was purchased in the UK. Like DVDs, printer cartridges are specific to the particluar region in which the machine was purchased so you need to use cartridges with the correct code for your region. For HP Photosmart C3183 (UK models) the correct cartridge numbers are HP 336 or HP 338 for black cartridges and HP 342 or HP 343 for tri-colour cartridges as listed on our website. Please contact HP directly if you need to source cartridges for a non-UK printer or ask them to change the regional code on your printer so that it can accept UK cartridges: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

  • The cartridge I had for my printer had a different number from the ones in your list. It was 131 for the black ink. How can I be sure that I'm ordering the correct cartridge?

    Photosmart C3183 cartridge numbers

    Without the model number of your printer we're unable to advise you of the correct cartridge numbers. This page displays ink cartridges for the HP Photosmart C3183 printer which doesn't use HP 131 cartridges. The nearest reference that we can find to a HP 131 cartridge is HP 131 toner cartridges for laser printers. Please re-check the model number of your printer. If you're using a laser printer then it's possible that you'll need to use HP 131 toner cartridges. You can check which printers use HP 131 toner cartridges in our printer compatibility list. Simply click on the link we've provided below to view our pack of genuine HP 131 toner cartridges and scroll down to the heading, "This item is guaranteed to work in the following printers." If your printer is included in the list you can click on the model name to bring up a full list of cartridges. If you're still unable to find your printer model on our website then it's possible that you have a non-UK printer in which case none of our cartridges would be guaranteed to work in the machine and we'd ask you to contact HP directly to find out the correct cartridge numbers.

  • I'm looking for the set of ink cartridges for the HP Photosmart C3183 all in one printer?

    HP Photosmart C3183 ink set

    Only two ink cartridges at a time can be used in the HP Photosmart C3183 printer. Any of the cartridges listed on this page will work in the Photosmart C3183, provided they are installed in the correct slots. The normal cartridge configuration for everyday printing is to install one black and one tri-colour ink cartridge. However, you can swap the black cartridge (HP 338 or HP 336) for the HP 348 photo colour ink cartridge to enhance the quality of colour photos. We currently offer various black and tri-colour HP C3183 ink packs (listed at the top of this page) which contain both of the cartidges required to use the Photosmart C3183 printer.

HP Photosmart C3183 Printer Review

Expert review of the HP Photosmart C3183 printer

Our Verdict:

Designed for offices and homes looking for a budget friendly solution, the HP Photosmart C3183 is a handy all-in-one printer that offers great printing, scanning, and copying results. It boasts USB connectivity and a 3000-sheet monthly duty cycle, as well as an easy and convenient control panel with a Photoexpress button launcher and a 'cancel job' button. However, the HP Photosmart C3183 only works with older operating systems, from Windows 98 Se to Windows Vista and OS X v 10.3, 10.4.


This sleek and modern printer features an easy to use control pane, a flatbed scanner, and memory card slots. The maximum printing and scanning resolution is 600 x 1200 optimised dpi. The HP Photosmart C3183 accepts different types of media, such as transparency films, envelopes, cards, and premium photo paper.


Users don't have to transfer files to their computers, as there are memory card slots on the bottom of the printer. For easy photo printing, there's a Photoexpress button on the printer, along with a convenient cancel button to save ink and paper. The retail price, running costs, and consumables of the HP Photosmart C3183 are all affordable.


Newer models of printers have already surpassed the printing and copying speed of HP Photosmart C3183. There are many other all-in-one printers that feature a fax machine, LCD display, and Wi-Fi connectivity.
